8 Months Old!

Ella is 8-months old! It was such a beautiful day so we decided to have a little photo shoot in the park.  Of course, Ella was excited about it :)

Ok I'm ready…what are we doing?
Hooray for getting older!
Can you see me?

What's Out There?

Ella is beginning to pull up in her bed to see over the bumper pad.  Clearly her next move is to stand all the way up! We've already had to move her mattress down 2 notches...

NICU Reunion

Today we attended an annual event at Centennial Hospital for all former NICU patients.  Since Ella spent the first 2 weeks of her life there, we got the invite! Though we did not get reimbursed for those expenses (as I was expecting) we still had a great time!

There were tons of activities (mostly for bigger kids) and lots of freebies. 

Ella did participate in a "crawling contest" to which she took first prize (of course). As you'll see in the video, she left her competition in the dust (poor fella)...

Ella got to meet one of her doctors while there. I think she even unbuttoned his shirt when we weren't looking…

Another highlight of the day was meeting Fred Flintstone, though he didn't have any buttons on his shirt…

After an hour, it proved too much for Ella, as she passed 
out in my arms.  A great time though and we look forward to attending next year!
